Nature and culture
The larger part of the canton belongs to the Swiss Plateau, where nature is gently rolling. These regions include, for example, the Lucerne hinterland, the Entlebuch valley and the UNESCO biosphere of the same name, as well as the nature around Lake Sempach.
In the west, the canton has a share in the fjord-like Vierwaldstättersee. This is also the location of the cantonal capital of the same name, Lucerne, the cultural centre of the region. Particularly worth seeing are the medieval old town and the two covered wooden bridges, Spreuerbrück and Kapellbrück, over the Reuss.

Outdoor activities in the canton of Lucerne
The canton's lakes, above all Lake Lucerne, attract water sports enthusiasts in summer. The varied landscape invites hikers and cyclists throughout the canton.
While hikers are mainly on the move in the gently hilly north of the canton and the charming foothills of the Alps, the mountainous south is the destination of mountaineers.
You can also discover the region by bike. Those who want to take it easy can go on excursions along the lakes. Demanding bikers, on the other hand, head for the Emmental Alps and hone their technique on the trails.
In winter, skiers and snowboarders pursue their sporting hobby in the extensive winter sports areas. Then the white snow-covered landscape also invites you to go skiing, snowshoeing and winter hiking.
